    Start your VM

    Next, make sure the new VM is started. First you'll need to locate the recently created VM. The Azure Portal offers several filtering options for your resources.

    1. You can, for example, click Go to resource group once the deployment has finished and look for the OS11Trial virtual machine.

    2. Click Start.

      Start VM

      If the Start button is disabled your VM is already started and you can proceed.

    Create your OutSystems apps

    You OutSystems Azure Trial is ready to use, so go ahead and take it for a spin! But let's ensure you have all the necessary components first.

    1. Download and install the Development Environment 11 on your local computer.

    2. Connect Service Studio to your environment.

      • You'll need the address of you VM to connect. It's the address associated with the OS11Trial Application gateway that can be found on the Azure Portal:

        Application gateway

      • Click on the OS11Trial Application gateway to see the Frontend public IP address. You can use either the IP or the <my_trial> address.

      • Launch Service Studio on your local computer. A Connect to Environment dialog box will appear. On the top right corner click Sign in with environment URL. The login box will look like this:

        Service Studio login

        Your Service Studio may already launch with this login box. No worries, you're in the right place, just follow to the next steps.

      • On the Environment field, fill in the address of the OS11Trial Application gateway. Use the username adminand the password you defined on step 5 of the installation wizard.

      • Click LOG IN. This warning will appear:

        Service Studio connection warning

        You'll see this warning because by default, the OutSystems 11 Standalone Trial doesn't have an SSL certificate installed. You can add a valid certificate or click CONNECT ANYWAY.

    3. You're almost ready to start creating OutSystems apps! One final step, let's install the extended product components.
